Theatre in the Mind

  • Spend your Saturday gaining new insights into ASF productions through ASF's acclaimed Theatre in the Mind lecture discussions.

    Designed around the plays presented each season, you can participate in free pre-show discussions, author, cast, designer and director talks at ASF, most Saturdays at noon.

    In addition, TIM programs can be arranged in your hometown or school! Contact education office for more information.

    Hosted by Dr. Susan Willis, ASF's resident dramaturg, these entertaining and thought-provoking lectures by noted theatre scholars complement a perfect Saturday afternoon at the theatre!

    Theatre in the Mind is cosponsored by the Auburn University Montgomery, Alabama Humanities Foundation, the state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and ASF.

    Reservations are not required; you may pick up your ticket at the box office counter just before each lecture. Theatre in the Mind is free and open to the public. You do not need to be a ticket holder to that day's performance to attend the lecture.
